you for being with us. . . live sunday at noon eastern on book tv's "in-depth is out of -- in-depth." >> this is "america and the courts." sonia sotomayor moved one step closer to being confirmed for the supreme court thursday. a vote was made to send her nomination to the full senate for a vote. the committee largely voted along party lines, with lindsay graham the only republican voting for her. they will take up the full vote next week. >> do we have a quorum? i want to thank all members of the committee for their cooperation. two weeks ago, during our hearings on the nomination of judge sotomayor, the supreme court got a chance to ask questions, also to raise concerns. it gave the nominee an opportunity to respond to relentless criticism, having had to remain silent for the two months prior to the hearing. it gave her her chance to half a public voice, and allowed the american people to see and hear for themselves. it is interesting that during those four days, almost 2000 people attended a hearing in person in this room. millions more solid, heard it, read about it, there were

standards i have used in evaluating judge sotomayor's nomination to the supreme court. she has the experience. she knows the lawsm she has the proper temperment. and here's something that's very important, her 17-year judicial record overwhelmingly indicates that she will apply the law without bias. and that's really very important. because, you know, we could find someone who really is facially qualified, but whose views might be for some reason so outside the mainstream, so different than what the norm of our jurisprudence would be, that it might presentedder them, while factually qualified, unqualified. that they could not be relied on to look at the case and apply the facts and the evidence and apply the law to the evidence presented, that they would not follow the law, that they would not be faithful to their oath. because of their views would be so extreme. so outside the mainstream. so completely beyond what would be the norm or considered to be the norm. but here in this person we have a 17-year record. she has written thousands of opinions. and these opinions ought to prov

this right now? we've got to use our resources for the deficit. first, i want everyone to understand the source of our deficit, because if you do not understand that, argument will not make sense. when i walked into the white house, i have people waiting for me at the door, a 1.3 trillion dollar deficit. 1.3 trillion dollars. i say that -- this was not -- and this is not, by the way, entirely the previous administration's fault. the financial crisis was so bad that revenue plummeted and all of this money was spent in making sure that the banking system did not completely collapsed. so all of the actions that have been taken just spite the deficit. but the problem actually is not that -- the extraordinary steps we've taken over last one or two years. the real problem is much longer. even if we had no fiscal crisis whatsoever, we have a structural deficit, we are spending more money than we're taking in, we have been doing it for the last eight years. when we passed the prescription drug benefit for medicare by a republican congress, they did not pay for it. they did not want to pay ta

broadcasting. the band, repeated, and the liberal use of sexually explicit or excretory terms on the airwaves, but it allowed for fleeting expletives to get away. fleeting expletives is a great name for a rock band, if you have teenagers. the sec amended their policy to say that after a couple highly publicized incidents in which first brought up, then share, then mikheil retreat 0-- bono, cher, and nicole richie, the revisited their opinion, and they said that the fcc should ban those words. the only issue coming to the court was an administrative procedure act issue. it did not reach a first amendment question, or the question of whether fcc versus pacific debt should be revisited or overruled. you all remember that. an fcc sanctioned against george carlin's monologue on the seven dirty words, where he took every opportunity to say them on the air. in a petition to joseph stevens, the sanction was upheld, suggesting that this type of language is not at the core of the first amendment, and in any event, broadcasting is different, because it is uniquely pervasive. it comes at you, yo
